    I am from the Hunter Valley in NSW and started the whole 30 yesterday. Found some great recipes from the 'Clothes Make the Girl' website. Good luck to all you Aussies.

    Hello everyone it is great to see so many Aussies on here. Seems like the real food revolution is beginning!
     
    It's a wrap for me! I finished the Whole30 3 days ago. I've already told you about the changes I could physically see. One to add - all the mosquitoes on my hike went straight for my hiking buddy and left me alone hah! Apparently they can sense blood sugar. Now the measurements.. I lost 1.2 kg - not huge, but I felt like I was eating my face off during the program as a result of having to focus so much on food, so I'm not that surprised. HOWEVER - my cholesterol dropped from 6.4 to 4.8!!!  Pretty amazed by that. Also stoked because I have a friend who is on cholesterol-lowering meds and maybe this experiment will help him.
     
    I am still a few kg above where I want to be so I think I'm going to jump right back on the horse.. after I finish my pot of natural yoghurt . By the way, the bread I was looking forward to tasted like cardboard. I've just had an appt with my workplace's health consultant, who is a big fan of paleo and suggests I try the intermittent fasting, and stepping up the exercise. No quick fixes I suppose. Oh to be a raging 17 year old again.
     
    One of the biggest things for me is being able to say I am in control of what I eat and so long sugar dragon.
     
    Hope you are all doing well!
